Subject: Great Movie
Hope that everyone can have the heart of Kenny's friend [without the corruption of stealing/murder]. Sacrificing himself to free Kenny and to unite him and Mary are great attributes of a great person. That's true love. Nevetheless, we can You can’t depend on gambling as a way of expecting riches. Take from me---start little and it comes drop by drop. Like a tiny, leaking faucet, whose tiny drop does not amount to much, the tub or bucked gets filled up if you let it stay under the faucet for one or more days. Start little, wait and persevere and you will become rich. Do not make the horrible mistake that have ruined most people, expecting a big bang in one day. It hurts badly and only God in Christ can rescue you from its horrible consequences. If you have fallen into this kind of trap, first get Jesus, then fast and pray for mercy and rescue from God.
Subject: Up to Raft's standards
Geoge Raft was always at the bottom of my list of film noir leading men. With a few exceptions,most of his films were instantly forgetable and this is one of them.
The presence of Victor McClaglen is the film's only saving grace.
I Never Thought Much Of Ava,As An Actress, But Barefoot Contessa With Bogie Her Best Role. She Married "Little Willie" Mickey Rooney Before "Long John" Sinatra Got His Grubbies On Her.....Men Ruined Her Career & Life..Just Like Rita Hayworth..!

Subject: Ava Gets 3 Stars For Being Stunning
This is a failed film noir. The film lacks pacing, George Raft is not believable and too old for the role, there is no real tension in the film.
But man Ava Gardner is absolutely atunning. You can see why so many men went nuts for her (including Sinatra). Every time she comes on screen its worth watching.

This was a very entertaining and very well done film. The main problem was why Mary would actually want Kenny. But just ignore that and watch it. All the acting was better than usual and it has some good twists to it. Five stars to the actors and actresses.
If it had been just a little darker and with another ending, then it would have been a great film-noir, but worth watching. If Bogart had been cast as Kenny, then it would have been easy to see why Mary loved Kenny.
